Just started reading all the posts here, seems like there are quite a few aficionados here.
Just bought hubby a turkey fryer and also a side firebox for his CharGriller smoker. Since this is all new territory for both of us "we" have been experimenting with both the smoker and turkey fryer. I have discovered that brining either poulty or pork is most excellent; the meat is so tender, moist and juicy.
I have also tried the injection method for the meat on both the smoker and the turkey fryer but have not been satisfied with the results, so far at least.
I tried using the Cajun injection sample that came with the turkey fryer but was not really satisfied with the flavor; I then tried the bottled marinade (teriyaki, caribbean jerk, lemon/pepper, etc) found at the local grocery store but the flavor seemed very strong in addition to being extremely thick consistency when you actually cut into the portion of meat that had been injected. Have tried it in not only turkey but also chicken and Cornish game hens.
Would anyone be able to suggest perhaps a recipe they have or possibly a link or two on the internet for some other injection liquids I might try? Any information you would be kind enough to post would be greatly appeciated.
Since hubby is the self proclaimed "Grill Surgeon" and no one can dethrone him (he thinks).
I would like to endevour to be the mistress of the smoker and turkey fryer and perhaps show him up just a "wee" bit.
I did a Google search, typing in "Deep Fried Turkey", there is a lot of information for a turkey fryer, recipes, etc. Thought you might want to give it a try, if you are still looking for more information. Actually, there is so much information, that it would take forever to look at all of it.
